Placement(1)		 AfterStep X11 window manager		  Placement(1)

NAME
       Placement - AfterStep supports several different	window placement poli-
       cies. Some of them designed to fill free	space, and some	 allowing  for
       windows to be placed on top of others.

CONFIGURATION OPTIONS
       Cascade

	      Windows will be placed in	cascading order.

       Manual

	      Windows must be placed manually.

       RandomPlacement

	      Windows  will be placed randomply, in space unobstructed by win-
	      dows that	have AvoidCover	attribute set.

       SmartPlacement

	      Most suitable free space area will be chosen to place window in.
	      If  no  such  area  is found of sufficient size -	window will be
	      placed using secondary placement strategy, or  manually,	if  no
	      secondary	strategy is specified.

       Tile

	      Windows  will  be	 tiled	in free	space. If no space of suitable
	      size is found, then secondary placement strategy is engaged,  or
	      window  will  have  to  be  placed  manually. This is similar to
	      SmartPlacement, except that suitable space is  chosen  following
	      direction	 left-to-right,	 top-to-bottom,	instead	of looking for
	      space, most fitting the  window  size  (the  way	SmartPlacement
	      works).
